100 DAYS OF THE POMPITUDE OF GROSS

250wde_obama-a-new-dope4 Perhaps it takes additional life experience for some to gain perspective adequate enough to distinguish the ongoing pomposity (that the mostly-Leftwing media is pumping in the air this day about Barack Obama’s “first 100 days in office”) from the actual, to be able to tell the difference between what lies you hear from why you’re being told those lies and, more importantly, what’s not being said, instead, and who is not saying it and why.

When the world is fun and calm, it’s called Public Relations done well when the fanciful and pleasant are accepted in the public dialogue as that-which-is-truth, but then the world fun and calm relies on the public dialogue being filled with tales that the world is fun and calm, so there are always tales being told us and it takes wisdom and insight gained from life experience, oftentimes, to recognize when what you read and hear are tales versus truth.

And there’s noticeable pompitude by Rahm Emanuel from behind the propaganda drapes as to Michelle Obama, among other things constructing this weirdly grotesque “day” of “glory” — Michelle Obama deemed by People Magazine to be among “the most beautiful people” and “a fashion icon,” something they cannot have written with a straight keyboard and if they did, they did so after drinking a full bottle of Old Crow after accepting a very large gratuity in their bank accounts — anonymously, of course).

Perhaps it takes a bit more life experience to distinguish hype from harm and the pompous from the real — granted, harm, hype and the pompous are real as real can be but the line to distinguish is the starting point from the middle delusion and end distortion that the media is eagerly pushing through tubes, over wires and air and explaining with great intolerance otherwise.

But gaining a bit of life experience beyond the average impressionable younger voters and voters otherwise who are not seeking information beneath the glossy, hyped distortions, gaining more life experience does open one’s eyes to the knowledge (and therefore, wisdom) that all that glitters is not gold — depends on the individual, some among the older and older Left never gain this wisdom at any age with any experience; when specifics are plodded through (it requires patience and time to do so, I realize, not everyone has these available often or frequently enough to keep-up with persons you assume are out for your good while they are not and their actions need to be followed closely, often, inorder to identify just how it is you are not being looked out for) and you are aware enough by life experience and insight, you can identify the hype and delusional distortion from the starting point you assumed would be upheld, but wasn’t.

NOT ROCK: OBAMA’S SHAKY HOUSE OF DEBT

Barack Obama’s today being hyped — and he is hyping himself — as “a 100 days” in the Presidency with a lot of grandiose lies. Oh, and then there’s one principle from Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount — Matthew 7 — that Obama pummeled for his self-promotional purposes in his speech at Georgetown University, going so far as to also say he’s using the entire Sermon on the Mount (Jesus Christ’s profound address to us humans) as his model for his plans, or, in other words (here’s where that wisdom comes into play by anyone who hears or reads this exploitive speech by Obama), in other words, Obama declares he emobodies Jesus Christ, lays claim to Christ’s profound Sermon as equivalent to Obama and the “Obama politics”.

So now Obama is actually saying he’s doing Christ’s bidding. What’s next, he’ll tell us he’s God? And when did the Left even begin to tolerate much less include Biblical references and Biblical passages? As recently as last week, I read the Left harassing anyone and everyone who so much as identified as Christian in random internet commenting, and just look at what Obama and other Democrats are going about trying to push through Congress today (“hate crimes” bill whose objective includes the criminalization of anyone who utters Christian doctrine if and as it’s perceived to be, by homosexuals, “harming” homosexuals — by the way, homosexuals are already covered by all the same laws as the rest of us, they already have the full array of legal protections available to them as individuals that the rest of us have but what they’re seeking is a special tier of laws to create criminal repercussions upon anyone of the Christian faith who may make mention of the Christian faith as regards homosexuality; in other words, Democrats are attempting to skirt around the Freedom of Religion currently provided to all American citizens by our Constitution).

The extent of Obama’s exposure to Christianity was in his foolish, profane rationalizations that the Black Theology decades-long indoctrination he received from the profane racism of and emotional screed by Rev. Wright represented him being “a Christian”. Which few people outside that crew surrounding Rev. Wright and similar practitioners of similar racism ‘theology’ would ever associate with Christ and Christianity, but that’s the extent of Barack Obama’s (and his wife’s) reference to Christ, or so they claim.

But now Obama is actually saying he’s doing Christ’s bidding and he’s modelling his political deeds on the Sermon on the Mount, or, Christ’s very words and insurmountably divine instructions from on-high, Christ, the Son of God…Obama, laying claim to the Son of God’s divine instructions, claiming he embodies those instructions.

So following are real reports as to his “first 100 days,” the ugly, wretched reality of what this man, such as he is, has wrought and worse, has plans to wreak upon us all, sampling from throughout our human world, what you won’t see painted on Obama’s glittering teeth or Michelle’s bare arms while she yanks a vegetable from “her” garden that the taxpayer-paid gardeners have planted and tended off-camera, or on the cover of Newsweek and People Magazine or from the likes of the ugliest bunch (lest you are still trying to watch either network) on CNN or MSNBC :
